Los Angeles International Airport Announces Changing Gates and Terminals Names



Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is improving passenger navigation by completely changing its terminal names and gate numbering system. This upgrade of changing gates and terminals names at LAX aims to streamline the design, facilitate navigation for travelers, and enhance the entire airport experience. This is a part of the LAX Wayfinding Enhancement Program. 

LAX Terminals Renaming 

The terminal structure at Los Angeles International Airport will change in a few ways to improve traffic and productivity. Important changes include Concourse 0 and Terminal 1 will merge into a larger terminal, enhancing entry for passengers. Terminals 2 and 3 are consolidating into a redesigned Terminal 2, simplifying transitions between services. The Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) will be renamed Tom Bradley Terminal 3 and expand its international capacity by integrating Bradley West Gates and the Main Satellite Concourse (MSC). Terminals 7 and 8 will combine into a more spacious Terminal 7. The planned Terminal 9 will now be Terminal 8.

A new alphanumeric system for gate numbering will be used in addition to changing terminals at LAX. With this modification, all terminals will use a standardized, user-friendly system. For example, concourses A and B in Terminal 1 will have gates numbered consecutively inside each concourse, e.g., A1, A2, etc.

LAX Wayfinding Enhancement Program

The people mover system, which is currently being built as part of the airport’s redevelopment, will improve connectivity among terminals and parking areas. The new stations, named A to G, do not directly match gate numbers; instead, they are positioned to coincide with terminal access. For an example:

  • Station A: Situated in front of the recently constructed Terminal 3 (previously TBIT).
  • Station B: This is the stop where travelers go for access to the C gates.
  • Station C: Serves travelers heading to the K and L gates.

The official launch of the automated people mover has been postponed for spring 2025, beyond the original completion date of 2023. This delay has been caused by several factors, including exceptionally rainy winters and interruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

With these changing terminals at LAX, both first-time and frequent flyers may need time to adjust. So, these upgrades are expected to make traveling easier and more efficient along with its art installations at LAX airport. Also enhancing the airport’s reputation as a major entry and departure point for Los Angeles.
